Home: History of a Journey


From the ghost town of Pripiat near Chernobyl, to the ruins of Petra, via the sunken ships of the Aral Sea, the tulip fields of Holland, and the frozen immensities of Antarctica, the photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand shares the meanings that these images have for him. He evokes the questions they pose for him, the struggles that have arisen over them, the difficulties of filming, and the very personal attachment that he feels for them.

In drawing from the 500 hours of rushes from the documentary "Home", Yann Arthus-Bertrand had a wealth of choices to conceive a second film on the flagrant wounds that our planet is suffering. Far from being redundant, "Home: History of a journey " explains the reasons why the photographer/director has returned to the subject... "Unrecognizable and pitiful – a biodiversity that is constantly regressing." This is the sad overview of our environment that the photographer and firebrand draws from his many trips over the world.
